Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No. 26

Happy Easter! Before I start in on my gratitude list for the week, I thought I’d entertain you with a little blast from the past: my sister and I in our Easter dresses – and me in my oh-so-fluffy Easter perm – sometime back in the 1970s. Well, at least my sister was adorable! 😉

Hope you’ll join me in this week’s Gratitude Linkup!


(If you’d like a bit of background on why I started the Gratitude Linkup, check out this post.)

My Gratitude List

In no particular order, here is my own gratitude list for this moment in time. I hope that after reading it you’ll go on to write and share your own!

  • My family and my upbringing.
  • The discovery of yet another amazing ethnic restaurant with my group of friends, and the fun of introducing it to Peter a few days later.
  • Thrift stores.
  • My blog with its many opportunities and possibilities, and the friends and connections I’ve made through it.
  • Our house with all of its space, features, and potential.
  • Local farmers, and knowing where our food comes from.
  • The Canadian three-sometimes-four-day Easter weekend.
  • A thought-provoking saying I stumbled across on Instagram: “You may not like your options, but you always have a choice.”
  • Getting ahead of schedule.
  • Looking forward to enjoying Easter dinner with friends at our place.
  • Lightness into the evening.
  • Achieving a reasonably clean house.
  • Delicious restaurant leftovers for the next day’s meal.
  • Efficient and timely tech support.
  • OK, this is a little silly – but I’m grateful that the fingernail I lost (read: completely ripped off down to the nail bed) in a Christmas holiday luggage mishap has now mostly grown back and is presentable enough that I no longer need to cover it with a band-aid whenever I leave the house! Sometimes it’s the little things.
